Reading Association for the Blind

New Day Centre Roof

Our Day Centre for the Blind urgently needs a new roof. The flat roof has begun to leak - we may have to close without notice if the damage gets worse. Our users rely on their visits to the day centre for companionship and entertainment - for many it is the only opportunity they have to get out.

The roof is leaking causing damage to the underlying structure and the internal decoration. The health and safety of our visually impaired users is paramount - a serious leak would force us to shut. T


The replacement roof will come with a guarantee for 25 years which will alleviate the concern that damage may dictate that we close for short term repairs. It will be insulated to new UK regulations which will make the day centre warmer in winter and cooler in summer. It should also help to reduce the charity's heating bills.
